The Louis Vuitton Alma BB Monogram Canvas Handbag is one of the most popular handbags from the brand. It is perfect for everyday use, as it is both stylish and practical. However, paying 1,700 GBP for one always seemed a little steep. But then I found the perfect solution, SehaBags.
SehaBags is a platform where you can find pre-owned luxury bags without the luxury price tag.
Now, the whole thing sounded a little too good to be true, but I decided to take the plunge and buy an Alma BB from them. How could I not? The bag I had always dreamed of was right there in front of me in the budget that I could actually afford! So it was time to risk it and get that bag, so I just went ahead and did it.
To help others that might be wondering about doing the same thing, I’ve jotted down my entire experience of buying a pre-owned luxury bag from SehaBags, so if you’re on the fence about it, you’ll know exactly what to expect!
Starting With The Ordering Experience
The first thing that I wanted to check was the collection they had. Even though the bag I wanted was what brought me to the site, I wanted to see the other listings.
This was important because I wanted to really get a feel of what the listings looked like and how things were on the site in general. I had seen some other preloved luxury items websites before and the one thing they all had in common was the fact that most of them were using images from the Louis Vuitton website.
That would always put me off because it was hard to figure out what condition the bag would be in real life. Even though their listings would be lower than the original Louis Vuitton website, there was simply no way to tell if the bag they were advertising was the one I was going to receive.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had their own custom listings for everything. All of the pictures were taken with the same background, which was a sign that the pictures were actually taken at their studio. This, in turn, meant that the bags that they were advertising at least had access to the bags they were advertising. So it was at least worth a shot.
So I went back to the Alma webpage, crossed my fingers, and placed the order!
Insane Quality Control
One of the things that really put my mind at ease with SehaBags was that their bags aren’t just uploaded by random people on the internet. The bags are checked by professionals to see if they are up to the SehaBags standard.
This is evident in the fact that they only have a limited number of bags on their website at any given time. I’m not sure how often they update their stock, but while I was looking, there were only a couple of Alma BB listings. That also means that they probably reject a bunch of bags that simply aren’t good enough to be on their site.
What this information did was that it took the burden of having to look up all of the little details of the bag to make sure it was all okay to get. I just went for it, and their team handled all of the micro work themselves!
Most of the time, when you order something online, it takes a really long time for it to actually make it to your home. That was a bit of a dread for me because it just dampens the buying experience, and by the time you receive your package, you’ve already forgotten all about it.
However, SehaBags was ready to surprise me again because they shipped the bag hours after I placed the order. It was sent through Royal Mail Special Service, so I literally received it the next day!
Feeling Just Like New
When I received the bag, I couldn’t even tell that it was pre-loved! All of the original packaging was still there, in perfect condition. I got all the boxes, the carry bag, the dust bags, and even the certificates. Everything was in place just as it would be if I had bought it from the Louis Vuitton store itself!
When I opened up the dust bag, my Louis Vuitton Alma BB Monogram Canvas Handbag was right there, looking even better than it did on the website! All for a fraction of the original price!
Overall, my experience buying a pre-loved bag from SehaBags went far better than I had ever expected. I got the bag I wanted and loved without having to break the bank for it! Now I have the bag of my dreams and money left over to actually put in it, which wouldn’t have been possible if I had made the purchase directly from the brand itself!
